*Erucastrum gallicum (Willdenow) O.E. Schulz. Dog-mustard, Rocket-weed, French Rocket. Phen: Apr-Sep. Hab: Disturbed areas. Dist: Native of Europe. Luken, Thieret, and Kartesz (1993) discuss the introduction and spread of E. gallicum in North America. While only weakly naturalized in our area, E. gallicum seems likely to increase in abundance. The report of Brassica erucastrum for NC in RAB is apparently based on material of Coincya muralis (Naczi & Thieret (1996).
